" and cbs news shows president obama ahead 50-45 among likely voters in ohio, that is unchanged from last week. the race has gotten a lot closer in florida where support for governor romney is surging higher. the race there now a virtual tie, 48-47, five weeks ago the president was winning by nine. in virginia the president is leading by two points, 49-47. three weeks ago he was ahead by five. let's talk about these numbers with charlie hurt, a columnist for the washington times. so if you were one of these candidates, which would you rather be given the trend lines, charlie? >> i think that given the fact that all of these polls are closing which, by the way, is not very surprising the polls are closing at this point in the race, but they're all sort of closing in mitt romney's favor, i think i would rather be mitt romney at this exact moment. but, obviously, you know, when you look at polls such as ohio which is, you know, historically a must-win state for either candidate, you know, obama is still faring pretty well according to the polls. and i guess the big question is how much faith
